Kyle Vanden Bosch Expects Detroit Lions To Lead NFL In Sacks


The Detroit Lions are one of the toughest, most physical defensive lines in the NFL and they hope to continue to put fear in the eyes of opposing offenses in 2012. Last season the team was tied for tenth in the league with 41 sacks but they are looking to improve on their performance.

In fact, the Lions will be disappointed if they don’t lead the league in sacks this season.

“If we’re not the most dominant defensive line in the league, I feel like we’re not doing our job,” defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch told MLive.com. “I feel like we have the people, I feel like we have the weapons, so if we’re not doing it, we’re underachieving.”

With a starting lineup of Vanden Bosch, Ndamukong Suh, Nick Fairley and Cliff Avril — once suspensions are served — it is hard to see the Lions having anything less than one of the league’s most feared groups

Detroit has all of the talent to accomplish their goal in 2012, now it is just up to them to live up to the talent and perform to their best ability.
